March 13

Justin Bieber plays Vivint Arena

Hard to believe it’s been 12 years since Justin Bieber, then a 16-year-old sensation, released his first EP, “My World.” Bieber, now 28, is on tour, behind his 2021 album “Justice.” Bieber performs Sunday at Vivint Smart Home Arena, starting at 7:30 p.m. Jaden, ¿Téo? and Eddie Benjamin will open. The show is mostly sold out, but resale tickets (starting at $300 each) are available at TicketMaster.com.

March 17

A popular, and controversial, conservative voice

Clinical psychologist Jordan Peterson has amassed a conservative following through his books, YouTube videos, and appearances on such platforms as Joe Rogan’s podcast. (His claims on Rogan against climate change modeling were “stunningly ignorant” and “a word salad of nonsense,” according to scientists quoted in The Guardian.) He’ll speak Thursday, 7:30 p.m., at Vivint Smart Home Arena; tickets are $59.50 and higher, at TicketMaster.com.

March 19

Real Salt Lake, at home again

Real Salt Lake will return to Rio Tinto Stadium to face Nashville SC in Major League Soccer play. It’s Real’s second home match of the season — and the March 5 opener was marked by a two-hour-plus weather delay and snow on the pitch. The match starts at 7:30 p.m.; go to realsaltlake.com for the link to buy tickets, starting at $15.
